Emission Repair For Sumner County Inspections
The US Government created the Environmental Protection Agency in 1967. The first EPA mandates were that you had to run a PCV valve to vent the crankcase fumes to the intake system of the engine. We repaired these systems and have been repairing every required system the auto manufacturers and the EPA have installed in vehicles since then. Starting from the beginning has been an advantage because we didn’t learn everything at one time. We learned the emission systems and emission system repairs one at a time as each new emission component was introduced .
Don’t have the people at the auto parts store or your friend who “knows about cars” diagnose your car or truck at your expense. We have the tools and knowledge to repair your emissions systems without guesswork. We can find exactly what the problem is and repair the correct components. We don’t just install parts. Most of the customers who try to repair the cars before they bring them to us replace parts unnecessarily. Many of them paid someone even though the problem is not fixed just because they don’t want to see the person who did the work not get paid something for their efforts.
In order to stop pollution levels from getting out of control in Davidson County the State of Tennessee adopted the MARTA tests. Passenger vehicles and light duty trucks 1975 or newer are required to be tested for emissions before they can be renewed or a new plate can be purchased. For a period before April of 2005 Diesel powered vehicles were exempt from MARTA tests but this is no longer the case.
Hendersonville Muffler regularly tests electronics and emissions components as part of the daily maintenance of vehicles. most problems that would have you fail a MARTA test would appear in a normal inspection on the car. The MARTA tests did not scare us or cause us problems because this is a part of the work that we were already performing.
We have the most modern equipment available to diagnose your car or truck emissions system. We have been repairing emissions systems since from the 1967 designs to the newest designs so we have the experience necessary to repair your system. We constantly keep updating our tools and training to keep up with the changes made by the manufacturers. our technicians have attended 5 courses this year alone. We understand exactly how the emissions systems work, how to diagnose them, and how to repair them and we enjoy what we do. We don't mind getting emissions problems in our shop and we look forward to serving you.
